After beating India in WCL 2024, Younis Khan comments on fitness of Pakistan cricket team

Younis Khan has dismissed claims that retired Pakistani cricketers are fitter than the current players of the national team.

This statement came after he led the Pakistan Champions to a decisive victory over the India Champions in the World Championship of Legends (WCL) 2024.

The inaugural edition of WCL 2024, organised by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), is being held in England.

The T20 tournament, which started on July 3, will conclude on July 13 in Birmingham.

On Saturday, the Pakistan Champions ended India’s two-game winning streak with a resounding 68-run victory, marking their third consecutive win in the tournament.

During the post-match press conference, Younis Khan addressed the perception that the retired cricketers of the Pakistan Champions appear fitter than the current national team.

“It’s not like that. Our current team is very fit. When a team doesn’t win, such things are said. We are winning, which is why people are speaking positively about us,” Younis said.

He added that their goal is to win the tournament and uplift the spirits of their fans, especially those disheartened by the Pakistan team’s recent poor performance in the T20 World Cup.

“We aim to win the trophy and give our fans something to smile about,” he added.
